Albion Investors ("Albion") is a private investment firm with offices in New York, NY and Chicago, IL. Since 1995 we have managed investments in excess of $2.7 billion of client capital in private debt and equity.
Albion Investors invests in traditional areas such as buy-outs,
recapitalizations and minority growth equity. We focus on two areas of direct
investing: first, we seek to be a lead investor in micro-cap investments, which
we define as those companies with EBITDA of $0.5 million to $3 million and which
typically fall below the initial investment size of most institutional
portfolios. Second, we look to partner and co-invest with other institutional
investors in transactions with EBITDA greater than $4mm. Albion's strategy is
to grow its companies organically and through acquisition to a size which is
more appealing to institutional investors.
Lead Investments in Micro-Cap Deal
We define micro-cap deals as those involving businesses with EBITDA of
$0.5 million to $3 million. We focus on a variety of industries and transaction types but are particularly interested in situations which are presently smaller than most institutions would consider but have the potential to grow to a more efficient size. Albion's principals invest portions of their own capital in every lead transaction the firm pursues.
Private Equity Fund of Funds
Albion currently manages aggregate capital commitments to private equity limited partnerships
in excess of $1.5 billion in over 100 private equity partnerships, including LBO funds,
mezzanine funds, venture capital funds, sector funds, community investment funds and distressed
